Following an epic, 13-inning struggle in Game 4 that saw the Los Angeles Dodgers edge the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1, and a dominant performance by ace lefty Clayton Kershaw for a 5-1 Dodger win in Game 5, the 2018 National League Championship Series returns to Milwaukee. The Brewers must win two games at home to earn a trip to the World Series, starting with Game 6, which will live stream from Miller Park on Friday.
While a win on Friday sends the Dodgers to their second World Series in two years, the Brewers pin their hopes for survival on 31-year-old lefty Wade Miley, who comes back just two days after an unusual outing that saw him start Game 5 — but depart after just one batter, according to ESPN.
Brewers Manager Craig Counsell wanted Miley to open the game against left-handed hitting Cody Bellinger, but Miley issued Bellinger a five-pitch walk and Counsell pulled his pitcher from the game. The Milwaukee skipper said the move was all part of a plan.
"If we went down 3-1, we were considering having Wade pitch this game," Counsell told ESPN. "But other than that, this is kinda what we decided we were gonna do."

First pitch is set for 7:39 p.m. CT at Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Friday, October 19. That start time will be 8:39 p.m. ET, and 5:39 p.m. PT.
The Dodgers will also go with a lefty starter in their attempt to secure a date with the Boston Red Sox in the 2018 World Series. Hyun-Jin Ryu, a 31-year-old fireballer in his fifth year since coming to Major League Baseball from South Korea, was dominant in his Division Series outing against the Atlanta Braves. He threw seven shutout innings with eight strikeouts, per Baseball Reference. But Ryu was less successful against Milwaukee, lasting just 4 1/3 innings in Game 2, allowing two runs on six hits before manager Dave Roberts went to the bullpen.
